Alfred Ottokar Lorenz
(11 July 1868, Vienna
– 20 November 1939, Munich
) was an Austrian-German conductor, composer, and musical analyst
. His principal work is the four-volume ''Das Geheimnis der Form bei Richard Wagner'', which attempts to comprehensively analyze some of Richard Wagner
's best-known operas. Lorenz's work reflects to a great extent his sympathy with Nazi ideology, and has only recently been discredited by scholarship.
